Authorities in northern Ohio say they a high-speed chase ended in the arrest of a 25-year-old man accused of kidnapping a 2-year-old boy and demanding ransom from his family.
The Mansfield News Journal reports that Ledbetter was the subject of a search after he and his girlfriend allegedly took a 2-year-old child from someone they knew and demanded money or cold medicine — used to make methamphetamine — for his safe return.
Police tracked them to an apartment where the child was found safe.
The Richland County jail had no information about whether Ledbetter has an attorney yet.
